@Wishmasterflo How do you recommend ROMs to be flashed? Stock to Slot A and Custom to Slot B? Or both customs?
That is dependent on you, both slot is treated as different so one will not affect other, so if you like custom+custom or oos+custom or custom+oos, anything possible, when i am using the dualboot, in slot A i flashed cherishos custom rom and in slot B i flashed oos 11 to test how it is. Everything works fine. Try it, it is the best 👍

Hi all!

New Dualboot Update :)

09/25/2021 - 3.5.2-9 v6.2

Changelog:
- Some small adjustments to the Dualboot flashing
- Changed first time flashing folder from /tmp to /dev due to issues with Orangefox recovery
- Updated to Magisk 23.0 app (Magisk itself is still 21.4 but you can install Magisk 23.0 from within the Magisk app)
- Added quickmode options "EFI128"/"EFI256" to repartition to EFI Layout with Windows NTFS partition and Android userdata for dualboot
- Added patch to enable SDCARDFS Support on Android 11 ROMS for which it is disabled by default


Download Link is updated in the OP.

With the added quickmode/fastmode options "efi128" and "efi256" you can now create the needed EFI and NTFS partitions used by the Windows ARM64 renegade project to Install Windows 10/11 on the Oneplus 6/6t.

One thing to note! When you have repartitioned to EFI/NTFS Layout with the above quickmode options and you want to go back to Stock Layout you need to go via msmdownloadtool!
So repartitioning back to Stock from the Dualboot recovery does not work when you are on the EFI Layout right now!!!
You are a Mad Lad my dude... Not long before you build the next most popular operating system from scratch.

Hi all!

FYI

I got display issues on my Oneplus 6t so I can not use it anymore.
Got a Oneplus 8t now so I will not do any more big development for this Dualboot for the Oneplus 6 series anymore unfortunately. :cry:
Of course if it is just to Update Orangefox or TWRP to a newer Version I will still update it but I dont think I will be able to release much with new feature anymore.
I know it is so sad.
Have to see how I will live with my Oneplus 8t without Dualboot now.
I can say that I already miss that I do not have my Dualboot on the Oneplus 8t now but since this device has dynamic partitions I can not implement/build a Dualboot for this device!

HI All and glad to see this project on the OnePlus 6! It's bee a while I didn't tweak with my enchilada and decided to try and make it a bit more exciting with dualboot, also many apps are detecting root and not working, some of them are vital and can't be replaced so I was wondering if it would be possible to install default non-rooted OOS (Android 11) on one slot and custom rooted ResurrectionRemix (Android 10) on the other one? I've watched the video and I'm worried about the part that said both ROMs should be on the same security patch, which is difficult to achieve when mixing android 10 and android 11 that's why I wanted to clarify this. Thanks again for the effort to keep the enchilada alive!

    Hello!

    In these Instructions I have updated some information about how to set up EFI/NTFS partitions etc.
    Actually I was worried about EFI/NTFS during last few days. I hope this would be the solution. Thanks for the information.

    Dualboot TWRP / OrangeFox
    For the Oneplus 6 series


    Dualboot_TWRP.JPG
    Dualboot_Orangefox.png

    Code:
    * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
    * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this mod
    * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
    * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

    You can choose to install this Dualboot-mod with a blacked themed TWRP or with OrangeFox recovery.
    Modified TWRP/OrangeFox and installer script for Oneplus 6 series that re-purposes userdata for true dual booting. You can also just use this as a regular stock recovery for flashing TWRP/Orangefox (Stock without Dualboot).
    This mod has Magisk 21.4 build in as of now but you can just manually flash the latest Magisk afterwards if needed or you can install the lastest Magisk Version from the Magisk app.

    You can select between A/B/(C) partition layout or stock partition layout (Dualbooting is only possible with A/B or A/B/C partition Layout not with Stock Layout!!)
    On Stock Layout you can now choose to have a seperate partition called StockSD.
    Seems that the StockSD Layout is not working correctly means if you flash a ROM it will just Bootloop.
    I had no luck in finding out why this is happening.

    You have to choose to install Magisk from the Dualboot-mod while flashing if you want to use the Common Data partition on A/B/C Layout or StockSD partition on Stock Layout.
    A limitation of this Dualboot-mod is that you can only set a PIN/Password in one of the ROMs not on both.

    FYI

    I am just testing my Dualboot with creating EFI and NTFS Windows Partitions.
    Have successfully repartitioned to EFI, NTFS, Android (ext4) partitions now and can boot the UEFI Shell from Windows.

    I am using the Renegate Project Windows 11 on ARM for this. :)
    So the next Update of my Dualboot will have options to create the EFI, NTFS partitions if someone wants to try it out with the above mentioned project.
